    I wanted to know the most essential stuff I need to quickly get started with XD. And this course was perfect for that. Brian teaches in such an engaging manner that the learner feels as excited about each feature as him. Awesome!

    This course is worth every cent. Brian has an excellent delivery style and is very articulate. I knew nothing about Adobe XD and believe that I have enough information to go off and design a prototype. I will be watching out for more courses with Brian's name on it. Thanks very much.

    Really good class. If you ever wanted to see what the fuss is all about with XD, and have a working knowledge of it, then this is the class for you. I followed along each topic with Adobe XD active and it really helped in understanding and expanding my workflow. Brian's classes as always, are well presented, to the point and easily understandable.
